This is our defining moment, is it yours?

This is a unique opportunity at a key moment for North Yorkshire.

As the newly elected Leader of the new North Yorkshire Council I am pleased to announce that we are looking to recruit our very first Chief Executive to join us at the start of what will be a hugely exciting journey.

We want a highly influential Chief Executive who will lead our newly formed Council and who will deliver a devolution deal that will further enable this great county of North Yorkshire to thrive.

This is one of those rare, monumental moments which presents an unrivalled career opportunity for a successful, influential and inclusive leader, a real strategic thinker.

Our New Council

With a brand new Council, newly elected members, the prospect of a new combined authority as well as its’ first ever mayor, North Yorkshire is on the cusp of a new dawn. The county already has firm foundations - a strong culture and identity which is rich in heritage; thriving communities where the people and places are resilient and innovative; beautiful scenery with stunning landscapes, quaint villages, market and coastal towns; plus the vibrant cities of York and Leeds just on the doorstep. This amazing county combines the best of the traditional and the modern, and is widely regarded as one of the best places to live in the UK. North Yorkshire is a great place to live, work and do business.

You will lead services that are widely viewed as some of the very best in country. You will have the unique opportunity to build our new council from the beginning. You will have a resilient foundation on which to build our new council, our new devolution deal and your new future.

Our new Chief Executive will ensure the Council is an organisation that is recognised for getting things done. The challenges are significant, but the rewards are too - guiding the Council’s formation, achievements, delivering real and lasting change and being at the heart of future success.

Make your future, our future.
